Hit for Haiti

Yesterday evening, eight greats of tennis - four women and four men - gathered for a "Hit for Haiti" fundraiser event in Indian Wells.

For the first time since the stadium at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden in Indian was built ten years ago, it was sold out for an evening session. The event, with the American Red Cross taking collections from those in attendance, was meant to raise $1 million for Haiti relief. It looks like way more has been collected!

The funny talk and play certainly amused the crowd and all the stars seemed to have a great time, too. After Martina Navratilova and Justine Henin opposed Steffi Graf and Lindsay Davenport in an exhibition doubles set, the team of Roger-Pete Sampras engaged a Rafael Nadal-Andre Agassi tandem. The outcome? Navratilova/Henin and our champ's team defeated their opponents 8-6 alike.
